    Hi!
    I bought this kit in Alaska last fall and while it is meant to be a wall hanging of 48" square I have made it into a snuggle quilt for my husband's birthday ( on Sunday! YIKES!) by adding the black border and the one next to it.

    Can I leave the side borders of black off to make the quilt more quilt shaped or should I continue on to make it a square?

    I want to finish the top today and possibly get it layered!

    Wonderful quilt. You did a fabulous job. But I think I would add the black. It looks a little unfinished.

    Beautiful! I think I'd go ahead and add the black side borders. If you don't, it will bug you every time you look at the quilt!

    Really pretty!!! But I think I would add the black. And if your husband Paul doesn't like it, I'm sure that my husband, Paul, would! :wink:

    Thanks guys!

    The borders are added and I am pleased that I did it! I also layered and quilted it this afternoon.

    Have to bind it and make a label, but that won't be a problem. Paul will surely sleep in on his birthday and I'll get it done! From cutting board to birthday boy in two days... that's a new record for me!

    Did Paul already see it, or will it be a surprise for him on Sunday?

    That's stunning!

    And now that it's too late.... I would have left the side borders off, put the black border top and bottom, and then bound it with black. :D
